Mentor Captain

Well, I'll be trying a new role with Team in Training with the spring team: mentor captain.

Now in case you think I will be commanding a ship or something like that, nothing of the kind. I'll be working with the mentors for the team and trying to help them help their mentorees in a very tough fund raising economy. It will be an interesting experience, and I hope that I can be useful in that role. In every other TNT event I have done, I only was involved with the marathon teams. In the capacity of mentor captain, I will work with mentors for the marathon, triathlon, and century cycle teams. I'll look forward to working with this fine group of volunteers, several of whom are prior teammates.

Tomorrow is the Light the Night walk. I am really looking forward to it.

Here is a photo my friend Kristi took of me after Saturday's information meeting. I like the fall colors in it, and of course, I am dressed in blue - suitable for a captain, wouldn't you say?

Wow, a promotion! That's a good idea to have help for the mentors. I'm sure that you'll do a great job, Captain......... Now beam me up.

Well done Captain (do I salute)

Love the autumn colours....your a great guy but I noticed them before I noticed you (but then I am an obsessive gardener)

Thanks Coach. I think it is a good idea. We have some new mentors and it is a tough fund raising environment. Not that I am an expert by a long shot. Take her to warp speed, Scottie!

Thanks Ashley. I will be working with a great group of mentors, should be fun.

No salute needed Cheryl. Maybe a slight bow. ;) Yeah the leaves are more striking than my mug! I told my friend that the photo of just the foliage would be good but she wanted me in there. Fortunately, her camera didn't shatter.
